Anniversary, Christmas, Friendship

Check out my sale pages if you're looking for bargains.  

Hard to believe it's almost the end of May.  Hope everyone in the US enjoyed the Memorial Day weekend & remembered the men & women who died for our freedom.  Roses are in full bloom, so I had some work to do after the rain.  Of course, I also did some cardmaking!
First up is another card with MFT cross stitch tags.  I used one of the patterns on their website to make an anniversary card for hubby's daughter & her husband.

The little sentiment is from SSS Sentiment Strips & they can be foiled using a laminator.

It's hard to see, but so fun to have a bit of metallic sparkle.  The card front is debossed with little hearts & circles.  I'm entering DRU.

I cross stitched a Santa tag for one of the cards I sent last year, but didn't get it posted.

It's also a cross stitch tag & pattern from MFT.  I used little stickers for the sentiment & I'm entering Rudolph Days.
This time of year I love seeing all the hanging baskets in the neighborhood.  My favorite is one with flowers in shades of pink & purple.  That's my inspiration for LFF at Ink to Paper where the challenge is to use your favorite summer color combo.

I made a CAS, one layer card stamping images from PTI Corner Adorner: February in Lovely Lady, Scarlet Jewel, Winter Wisteria & Vintage Jadeite.  The sentiment from the set was stamped in Versafine Clair Morning Mist.  The flower center was covered in Shimmery Pico Embellisher & I added additional dots for embellishment.  I'm also entering ModSquad.

  1. Your cross stitched tags are lovely Greta and something that little bit different, your CAS card at the bottom is also very stylish.

  2. The cross stitched cards always float my boat. I have a friend who cross stitches cards too and they always look superb. In a different genre, the clean and simple card is equally lovely with that special sentiment. x

  3. I love you Crossed stitched tags, such a fantastic idea.
    Thanks for joining in at the Rudolph Days challenge this month.

  7. I came over to check out your lovely card for Laurie's Fabulous Favorites and was delighted to find your cross stitch tags too Greta! I bought the MFT die to cross stitch with a year or two ago and have never cross stitched with it...shame on me! After seeing your beautiful anniversary tag/card and your sweet Santa tag, you inspired me to pull the tag out and sit it on my desk...we'll see if something gets made now! :0)
